General remarks what works and what not on my 47PFL7606
Bought my TV on 5/feb/2012. Only used current firmware version (0.95)
Didn't tested all possibilities, but it seems that it's not supported when playing from DLNA. Would really like this
Works quite well. Is slow, but that can also be my DLNA server. I use PS3 media server on my windows 7 PC. Only works well for formats that are supported natively by philips, so no encoding on pc-side done.
Very good. I like the quality very well. You don't have to keep your head vertical. I'm glad I bought a 3D tv.
More than half of the time, starting up NET TV hangs on 'step 3'. Workaround: start it from an app (ipad or android). It almost always work, even if it just failed using the remote
NET TV Apps:
Youtube can be way better. No history or favourites or tumbnail view on the whole screen
Nice, only a pitty that keyboard mode does not work in youtube
Some things can be improved.
- Switch to 3D: it takes at least 3 button presses, and sometimes up to 8 to switch to 3D when source is half SBS. A shortcut button should be nice
- NET TV & DLNA browsing is very slow
- it should be nice to be able to place net-tv icons in the home menu
Looking forward to new firmware updates and hoping it will only improve.
42PFL7606K goes into standby randomly
I didn't have this problem when I bought the TV almost four months ago. The TV was running for hours without any problems at all. After the latest firmware update however the TV goes into standby randomly. Sometimes it happens once a day, sometimes several times a day. The funny thing is, the latest firmware is supposed to fix this problem but for me it caused it instead.
I could live with it since I'm too lazy to downgrade the firmware but what really worries me is that a few minutes ago the TV did a crackling sound and turned off (instead of going into standby). It came back like 10 seconds later and everything looks ok but I'm still worried.
